In fact, the color red has nothing to do with a bull’s anger. The infamous Myth Busters themselves have tested this theory before. Their experiment involved fake matadors and red, white, and blue flags. Each “bull-fighter” was set up in separate areas of the arena. According to their results and Discovery TV, “The red, blue and white flags got equal, half-hearted attacks when they were motionless.” So, what’s the deal?
The color red is actually just a fashion choice for these daring sportsmen. They actually have to wave the red cloth in front of the bull in order to trigger the response. According to thenakedscientists.com, “it’s more likely to be that the bull is excited by someone wearing silly, bright clothes, dancing about and flapping something in the bull’s direction.” So basically, these 1,800-pound monsters are just irritated by people being ridiculous.
So, if you ever encounter a feral bull, DON’T MOVE IN AN UNNECESSARY MANNER.
